"America IS the shining light on the hill!"

I'm sorry Rastamon, but I would have to disagree with that.

Corporate America has seen record profits, pays little to no taxes, owns politicians and sends jobs overseas in order to condition American workers to work for lower wages. all the while waving the flag and loudly proclaiming their patriotism . They talk about mutual sacrifice and belt tightening , yet they push for deregulati on, tax cuts and loopholes for the very rich, while advocating policies that will decimate the middle and working classes and the poor including calling for cutting or eliminating programs that mostly benefit the most vulnerable in our nation. This is a scam that has been perpetuate d on America for the last 30 years since the "great" Reagan began the assault on the middle class and the poor. The wealth gap between the top 2% and the rest of the country has never been higher and they accuse liberals of pursuing a policy of wealth redistribution, when that is exactly what they have been practicing for 3 decades. The Supreme court has ruled that corporations are citizens and can spend unlimited funds on campaigns, yet congress does nothing for finance reorm or transparency. We are involved in perpetual wars that kill thousands of innocent civilians and the children of mostly middle class and poor Americans but provide huge profits for the vast military industrial complex. We are rapidly becoming a plutocracy with government policies being dictated by corporations.
